The State Security Agency (SSA) has labelled an accusation by the Democratic Alliance that the SSA was possibly involved in a recent break-in at the SABC’s Parliament offices as “reckless”.

The broadcaster’s offices in the Marks Building had been broken into late on Friday night, where at least five laptops were stolen.

There was no sign of forced entry, Parliament spokesperson Molotho Mothapo said over the weekend.

SSA spokesperson Brian Dube on Tuesday said the agency noted with “great concern” the insinuation made by DA MP Phumzile van Damme that the agency may have been involved.

“We take great exception at such reckless statements that undermine not only our institution but the state as well,” Dube said.
